Small town feel
I like the community atmosphere and the small town feel of Matthews. It doesn't feel like it's just a suburb of Charlotte, but instead it feels like a self-sufficient town (which it is!).
You're likely to see lots of kids skateboarding and families getting together for barbecues. Neighbors seem to get along great here and they'll definitely welcome the occasional visitor with open arms.
I took this photo near the pond in front of Matthew Presbyterian Hospital.
